City, CN and Tree Canada Celebrate
Prince George, B.C. – Just minutes after celebrating CN’s Carbon Reduction Project for Business ( see previous story) , the celebration branched out to another at City Hall.
There, acting Mayor Garth Frizzell was joined by representatives from CN and Tree Canada to mark the planting of special trees on the grounds of City Hall, and to announce the planting of many more around the City.
“We are going to be planting 150 new trees” says acting Mayor Garth Frizzell, a project made possible through partnerships with Tree Canada, CN and BC Hydro. In all, the project is estimated to cost $27 thousand dollars.

The trees planted on the grounds of City Hall are three maples representing Canada, one birch to mark the relationship with First Nations, and a dogwood which is the provincial symbol for B.C.
CN is sponsoring the planting of trees along 18th avenue and Ospika Boulevard around the CN Centre’s parking lot, and BC Hydro is planting another 90 trees on the Ospika median between Massey and Ferry.
